The SG Gothic Morte Electric Guitar's horned double-cutaway mahogany curves are cloaked in a Satin Ebony finish with matching black nickel hardware and black Grover tuners.

None, none more black."The beating heart of the SG Gothic Morte (morte is French for death) is represented by a pair of Gibson USA's amazing new GEM (Gibson Electronics Manufacturing) active pickups. Made in the image of the greatest traditional passive pickups of all time, Gibson's own PAF ("Patent Applied For") humbuckers, the GEMs have Alnico II magnets and coils wound with 42 AWG enamel-coated wire.

Gibson Dethklok Thunderhorse Explorer Electric Guitar Silverburst

Sustain is maintained but with a warmer approach and makes broader tone versatility easily with reach. The set mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard has a '50s rounded profile that gives Skwisgaar ample support for his muscular riffing. The nut and neck both receive Gibson's revolutionary PLEK setup. And by the way, that's a satin silver burst...not satan. BurstBucker Thunder To maximize all of this tonal splendor, the Dethklok "Thunderhorse" Explorer is equipped with a calibrated set of Gibson's popular BurstBucker humbucking pickups, which comprises a BurstBucker 1 in the neck position and a slightly hotter BurstBucker 2 in the bridge position,

Fender 60Th Anniversary Telecaster Electric Guitar Blackguard Blonde
This is where it all began: in 1951, Leo Fender released the Telecaster, the world's first commercially successful solidbody electric guitar. Renamed from "Broadcaster" that was introduced in 1950, it's has a simple, yet enormously useful design—borne out of Leo's experience with electrifying Hawaiian steel guitars—that has been embraced over the years by guitarists from a wide range musical genres, and copied by guitar builders all over the globe.Just like the original, this 60th Anniversary Telecaster has the features that set the template for solidbody electric guitar design: a single solid plank of ash that provides the basis for the storied twangy sound, a revolutionary one-piece bolt-on maple neck—until the Tele, bolt-on necks had only been used on banjos, the classic string-thru-body bridge, and dual single-coil pickups with the treble pickup mounted on the bridge plate—a coupling that helps characterize the Tele sound. From crisp signature sparkle at the bridge to warmth and fullness at the neck, the 60th Anniversary Telecaster gets its rich depth, definition and dynamics from dual American Vintage Telecaster single-coil pickups.Controls Volume, tone and pickup switching—that's it. Now as then, the controls are elegant in their simplicity and solidly reliable in their effect on the sound. Two knurled "chromedome" knobs are mounted on an original-style chrome control plate. The one knob on the Tele features the Delta Tone™ system, in which a detent at the "10" position eliminates all the tone control circuitry and delivers the pure, direct sound of both pickups.
